My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Savannah Graham thought she had the perfect marriage…until grief drove her husband into the arms of his best friend’s wife. Now, she believes revenge is the only way her heart can heal from the betrayal.

For fifty-two years, Ollie Moss lived side by side with the love of his life, his wife Elizabeth. But now that she’s gone, so is his desire to live, despite the love from his children, and his beloved grandson Samuel. Can anything save Ollie’s life?

Anna Rodriguez just wants to work and provide for her three children by any means necessary. But her decision to break the law in order to get a job is threatening life as she knows it.

Trey Brown is known in his neighborhood as a hustler, so much so that the gangs want him to join their ranks...but there’s a reason the nineteen-year-old does what he does—he’s the only one left who can save his little brother.

Different circumstances lead each of them to The Markham Hotel, where they hope to find solace, comfort, and answers. Told from multiple perspectives, The Book in Room 316 will renew your strength and faith that there is always a way forward.

I'm on the fence. I did enjoy the way the author wove each story together and showed the connection between the four beyond the book in room 316. I liked the way the author  managed to add in some very important topics i.e. adultery, suicide, immigration and street life. My impatience had me thinking the author was going to leave me with several unanswered questions. However, she managed to pull the ending for all four stories together in a way that was believable and completely satisfying for the listener. The production quality on the audio was well done. The narrator did a great job as usual.  I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an easy listen.
